  Turn %s strings back into $foo or {foo} strings

Status in gettext:
Status in “computer-janitor” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: computer-janitor

  Bug 621723 complains that the new PEP 3101 style format strings, i.e.
  {foo} cause problems for translators because gettext, and thus
  Launchpad, do not recognize these strings.  This means that the
  content checking currently done for %(foo)s strings would not be done,
  and UI can break.  %s strings are horrible and must die, but they
  can't until gettext and LP support the new formats.  dpm (David
  Planella) will file an upstream bug on that.
